hEY mASHED (AND, sMASHED ! )
i LIK'A THA' Way you Think............Mor-dor, to ah, ah, tudor !
I could'nt believe that decent two doors were that hard to find, but some
one wid a little imagination solved that, makin' ........Right On !

What RU working on NOW ?
you been skinny dippin in the gene pool, smokey? or just a bit too much of that home grown....
Sweet heavens Smokey is hard to read. Text much? LOL.
anybody suicide the rear doors of one?
My '47 Ford Fordor was gifted to me by my lifelong bud Marc.
I've had '46-'48s before, ('46 Tudor, '46 Coupe, '47 convert, '48 Merc convert)
This is the only Fordor I've ever had, the rear doors are Suicide-style (factory) and the back seat is as spacious as a limosine. All the trim is there, so it would be a crime to shave it all off...I want to do a nice taildragger like in the '49-'52 era.
(like a hot rodder would do back then to the family car: Low, black, flare skirts, Appletons, wwws, Cad Sombreros or bar-Moons, white tuck & roll, maroon piping)
Front crossmember surgery was performed by Marc, (just have to finish it) Great trick: it guarantees an additional 3" of drop, without the 'U' bolts getting into the scrub line!
At first I thought this car was huge, but when dropped....different perspective. (Duh!)
Wife Joey and I have grandchildren, too...
You CAN love more doors.
Go for it. I really dig the late 50s/early 60s chopped flat tops which were mostly 4 doors to start.
That thing is bitchin! I could have never thought about selling it!
thats what i thought too
Hey Munster, there is a guy on here that has a 51 chevy 4 door chop that is the best I've seen. I have a 51 poncho 4 door I'm going to chop and I've been searching this thing for a few years. His name on here is droplord49 and the pics are in his "the 51" album. I think you will dig it
pretty cool indeed, i was thinking a bit more out of the rear of the roof tho,little bit more slant.
do post some pics of your poncho....
Can you post more pictures of your ride for all to see.....Please
theres a 49/50 lincoln over here by me for sale....i just got to many projects now or it would be growing roots "yard art" here
Here you go.
how much of a chop is done on it?
3 or so in the front, 4 or so in the back. If remember right. I chopped it in 2000.
Here is my 49 Merc.
no i didnt take any sorry
that 49 is looking good
I once had this '52.

1950 Studebaker .....
Here's a 51 Studebaker 4 door turned 2 door that looks pretty good .....
